we're off! Seldom does a show start with such a bang. Absolute detonation into Bertha and it just goes. They stride the musical landscape as colossal beasts. Don't listen to this while driving - you could die...........

Subject: Another Great Show From Late 1980
I still remember my friends reporting back from this gig - just how amazing the entire show was, not to mention Airto and Flora during drums. And who can argue with a 12-song first set! :)

Subject: wow, what a show and pristine aud recording
this show gets five stars just for the incendiary other one out of a very cool space. kudos to joani walker and charlie miller for this wonderfully articulate and mixed recording.

best from the early 80's
Reviewer: The TRUE Bucky - - August 17, 2009
Subject: Drums/Space/chasnting >The Other One
Well, this show, the Drums > Space just rules - anybody catch the small Cumberland Blues tease at the beginning of space? We got this tape 8 months before they broke out Cumby in Long Beach the following Summer & heard the tease before that - odd coincidence if coincidence it was.

The Wheel before drums is so sweet going into D/S & The Other One after the killer Drums/Space/chanting is odd in that Phil BLASTS the band into a third instrumental after verse two that tears the roof off the joint.

Totally forgotten show for these days, but GREAT

Thanks Charlie! This is a definite upgrade over the previous AUD.
Reviewer: Dr.Unclear - - December 29, 2007
Subject: Joani Walker + Charlie Miller = WOW
I can't recommend this recording enough. As a former SBD-snob, I was skeptical that any audience recording could sway me away from my SBD ways... This set of recordings made by Walker-Scotton (processed by Charlie) are unbelievable. Just take a listen. The sound is full and deep, not thin and raspy. The bass is rich, the highs are crisp. The show is fantastic too, but the sound blows me away.
